NFL DFS, Steelers vs. Browns: Best DraftKings, FanDuel daily Fantasy football picks on Thursday Night Football

After nail-biting wins in Week 1 and disappointingly close losses in Week 2, the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers will be hungry to get more than .500 back when they go head to head on Thursday Night Football. Cleveland has a strong running game, while Pittsburgh struggled on offense under new quarterback Mitch Trubisky. With quarterbacks playing such an important role in single-game NFL DFS slates, both can be viable options for your NFL DFS lineups. Amari Cooper and Diontae Johnson are the only receivers from each team to reach 100 yards in the first two weeks and both could be popular options for NFL DFS lineups. Before You Make Your NFL DFS Picks for Steelers vs. Browns on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, you should check the NFL DFS advice, strategy and player projections from SportsLine Daily Fantasy expert Mike McClure.

McClure is a legendary professional DFS player with over $2 million in career earnings. His methodology has led to huge cashes on FanDuel and DraftKings. He won two high-stakes tournaments at FanDuel in 2020 and achieved a pair of top-10 finishes in tournaments with over 130,000 entrants at DraftKings. His lineups also finished in the top 1% in more than a dozen other tournaments.

He uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every NFL action, taking into account factors such as matchups, statistical trends and injuries. This allows him to find the best DFS values ​​that he only shares with SportsLine members.

Last week, McClure featured Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams in his Thursday Night Football NFL DFS picks for Los Angeles vs. Kansas City. The Result: With no Keenan Allen (hamstring) available, Williams went off for 113 yards and a touchdown in a loss to the Chiefs.

Now McClure has turned his attention to Steelers vs. Browns in Thursday Night Football Week 3 and captured his daily top picks for Fantasy football. You can only see his choices and analysis on SportsLine.

Top NFL DFS Picks for Steelers vs. Browns on TNF

One of McClure’s top NFL DFS picks for Thursday Night Football in Week 3 is Browns bringing back Nick Chubb. The fifth-year Georgia product continues to work harmoniously in Cleveland’s backfield with Kareem Hunt as Chubb dominated the early work and gets most of the short haul, while Hunt is deployed in passing situations and as an overall change of pace.

Chubb has averaged at least 5.0 yards per carry in every year of his NFL career and produced 228 rushing yards and three touchdowns in the first two weeks of the season. He will face a Pittsburgh defense that ranks 22nd in the run defense for two weeks. He should be lining up for another 20-plus touch game on Thursday Night Football in this quintessentially physical AFC North rivalry.

Part of McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes the roster of Browns quarterback Jacoby Brissett. Last week, the journeyman completed more than 80 percent of his passes for 229 yards and ran 43 yards on six carries. Brissett has had limited opportunities against the Steelers in his career, but in three appearances he completed 62 percent of his passes for 281 yards.

During the first two games, Pittsburgh has not seen a quarterback pose a legitimate threat to let the ball run. How well the Steelers will be able to contain Brissett is the question after the team had to put TJ Watt (pectorals) in the injury reserve after week 1. In a match-up between two fouls looking to show their respective running backs, Brissett offers up his head at QB with his efficiency and rushing potential.
